Throughout our history, Great Commission Church of God has obediently
responded to God’s leading. In this present season of ministry, we are again poised to respond to His voice, as we begin a new building fund
campaign. We believe that God is opening the necessary doors to accomplish this effort. With the success of this building fund campaign and ultimately the construction of our
new sanctuary project, the body of Christ will be strengthened, our community will be more effectively reached in the name of Jesus Christ, and the Kingdom of God will be increased for His
It takes more than just buildings to make a church – it takes people who have fellowship with one
another and, more importantly, with God. Buildings, however, do serve to give us consistency and stability in our ministry efforts. With the new sanctuary, we will be able to more adequately minister
to our community both now and in the generations to come.
Why now? This is the question you may ask. While we have not outgrown our current church and it is still well maintained, it is no longer meets our ministry needs. Last year, Young Men, Inc.
Youth Ministry served more than 100 young men in the fellowship hall, but we continue to struggle with adequate space to accomplish all the needs of the participants, staff, and program storage.
Also, our church has grown beyond the capacity that the fellowship hall can be used for. In 2015 we hosted our second Making Better Choices Conference for the community and we continue to
struggle with adequate breakout space and the logistics, along with layout cgallenges of rooms. This made it difficult again to conduct a quality conference. Since it our desire to
get more involved in similar community efforts, a new facility would better meets these needs.
Therefore, a committee has been formed and we are currently in the process of choosing a consultant,
and fundraising and giving campaigns are well underway. All these things are being done so that we can count the cost and eventually meet the budget it will take to complete the
new building which we hope to include: 200 - 300 seat sanctuary, mutiple conference rooms/classrooms, pastoral offices, administrative offices, computer lab, gymatorium, and a special
area for our youth ministry to meet in. We pray that you will be every one of you will be supportive of this effort and that you would be consistent
in your tithing and giving, and perhaps even increase as the Lord gives you favor and increase.
Continue to pray that God blesses this effort and that His guidance
accompanies us every step of the way. Luke 24:27-29 says "Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. What is the first thing you will do? Won’t you
sit down and figure out how much it will cost and if you have enough money to pay for it? Otherwise, you will start building the tower, but not be able to finish. Then everyone
who sees what is happening will laugh at you."
